    disconnect battery negertive terminal
    undo and remove the 10mm (spanner size) nut and disconnect the solenoid wire

    undo and remove the 13mm (spanner size) nut and disconnect the main starter lead and the alternator wiring

    undo and remove the 13mm (spanner size) bolt through the lower mounting point on the starter, this has an earth lead on it, push the lead to one side

    undo the top starter bolt (same as lower bolt) and remove the starter from the engine. The top bolt can't be removed from the starter with it in place, and it can't be fitted after you've put the motor back either so don't forget it!


rebuild is a reversal of the strip, should take no more than ½ hour even if your doing it on your back :)

sounds like theres not enough clearance to completey take the bolt out so undo then lift starter out with it sitting the hole this is how i understand it !!! looking at the mk6 starter and its posistion i would say thats roughly what it is :? :roll:
You only need two tools in life: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.

Dead right 100ps :D

Easy 10min job if you remember to sit the top bolt in the new starter before fitting it, unlike the first one i did when i got the bottom one in and then had to take the bugger off again cos I forgot :oops:

How do you get access to the electrical terminals because of the hoses?

Use several extension bars together on the socket to allow you to use a ratchet nearer the front of the engine (almost touching radiator) thats how I do them, or remove two main bolts first, then push starter towards rear of van to give more clearance between hoses, however it won't go far as the loom is extremely short :wink:
